An Introduction toLEED® for Existing BuildingsDecember, 2004


LEED Green Building Rating System

under development

  • LEED-CS

    (core & shell)

  • LEED-H

    (homes)

  • LEED-ND (neighborhood developments)

available

  • LEED-NC

  • (new construction)

  • LEED-CI (commercial interiors)

  • LEED-EB

    (existing buildings, operations and maintenance)

As of 12.15.04


intentions of the EB rating system

  • provide a voluntary standard for green buildings to improve performance while reducing overall operating costs

  • measure and verify green process improvements, upgrades, and maintenance

  • promote whole-building, integrated, sustainable design

  • recognize leaders

  • raise consumer awareness

transform the built environment!

As of 12.15.04


when to use LEED-EB

  • initial certification of existing buildings

  • ongoing re-certification of existing building first certified under LEED-EB

  • ongoing re-certification of existing building first certified under LEED-NC

As of 12.15.04


how LEED-EB compares to LEED-NC

  • LEED-EB

    • building operations and upgrades

    • facility managers & support companies

    • ongoing/continuous process (life of building)

  • LEED-NC

    • building design & construction

    • architects & builders

    • one-time event

measuring achievement

Points are awarded under LEED-EBwhen the requirements of a credit are satisfied. Total points awarded determines the level ofcertification.

LEED-EB: levels of certification

Certified 32-39 points

Silver 40-47 points

Gold 48-63 points

Platinum 64-85 points

As of 12.15.04



sustainable sites goals

  • continue to use existing buildings and sites

  • protect natural and agricultural areas

  • reduce need for automobile use

  • protect and/or restore sites

As of 12.15.04


water efficiency goals

  • reduce the quantity of water needed for the building

  • reduce burden on potable water supply and treatment facilities

As of 12.15.04


energy and atmosphere goals

  • high levels of energy efficiency and system performance

  • encourage renewable and alternative energy sources

  • support ozone protection protocols

As of 12.15.04


materials and resources goals

  • reduce the amount of materials used

  • use materials with less environmental impact

  • reduce and manage waste

As of 12.15.04

Thomas Properties Group

Cal/EPA HeadquartersSacramento, CA

Sustainable SitesAlternative Transportation: Easy access to bus lines/light rail; Bicycle storage/changing facilities serving 7% of building occupants; 24 charging stations for alternative vehicles; Program encouraging telecommuting and carpooling.

Water EfficiencyWater Use Reduction: High efficiency fixtures, waterless urinals, and other measures reduced water use by more than 20% below baseline.

Energy & AtmosphereOnsite Renewable Energy: 736 photovoltaic panels generate electricity that is delivered to the utility grid

Materials & ResourcesOccupant Recycling: 210 3-in-1 recycling bins are located throughout the building, helping achieve a 50% waste stream recycling rate.

Indoor Environmental QualityGreen Cleaning:Uses cleaning products that have received the Golden Seal Charter Team certification from the State of California.

JohnsonDiversey

Global HeadquartersSturtevant, WI

Sustainable SitesReduced Site Disturbance: Turf grass, prairie grass, and ponds cover 93% of the sites; open area.

Water EfficiencyWater Efficient Landscaping: The irrigation system serving the JohnsonDiversey grounds operates solely on captured rain and recycled site water, using no potable water in any application.

Energy & AtmospherePerformance Measurement: Johnson Controls Metasys building automation system monitors and measures a number of building systems.

Materials & ResourcesOptimize Use of Alternative Materials: Purchasing policies target the use of alternative materials including salvaged materials, recycled content, local/regional materials, and certified wood.

Indoor Environmental QualityControllability of Systems:JohnsonDiversey installed personal environment modules (PEM) in 93% of the total building office areas.

Why Certify?triple bottom line benefits

“Through significant reduction in operating expenses, I have determined that green building operation is not only good for the environment, it is good for the bottom line.”

– Craig Sheehy, CPM, Director of Property Management, Thomas Properties Group, LLC; Cal/EPA, LEED-EB Gold

Build Green. Everyone Profits.

As of 12.15.04


environmental benefits

  • reduce the impacts of natural resource consumption

  • buildings represent:

    • 39% of U.S. primary energy use

    • 70% of electricity consumption

    • 40% of raw materials use globally

    • 12% of potable water consumption

As of 12.15.04


economic benefits

  • increase building valuation and ROI

  • optimize life-cycle economic performance

  • reduce operating costs

    • according to U.S. EPA research, tenants can save about 50 cents per square foot each year through strategies that cut energy use by 30%. This can represent a savings of $50,000 or more in a five-year lease on 20,000 square feet

As of 12.15.04


occupant benefits

  • decrease vacancy, improve retention

  • reduce liability

  • high worker productivity

    • a study by Carnegie Mellon University measuring the relationship between increased lighting control and productivity showed an average increase of 7.1% in productivity
